Yes, Mike! The trip was enjoyable indeed. The grab bag is the best one among all the waterfowl pictures I took this time. The others are so-so.

Very nice collection. Love the Cinnamon teal. Those are Snow geese you captured, one adult and three juveniles. I really like the composition and variety in your last shot.

Cheers, Steve

Thanks, Steve! The last shot was taken from the viewing deck at Colusa, I was lucky to have 3 different species of ducks posing for me at the same spot.

Beautiful set 3 and 5 are my favorites.

The 3rd are Snow Geese and I found a pond with almost 500 of them last weekend.

Thank you for posting.

Marcelo, thanks for commenting on my pictures! I can use a lot of help with identification of these ducks. They look very similar and I am still new at doing this. A lot to be learned yet!

Marcelo,

I usually shoot around my neighborhood lagoon on Bay Farm Island in Alameda. Alameda is an island city right next to Oakland across the Bay from San Francisco. Alameda is surrounded by water and have a lot of places to take pictures of waterfowls and shorebirds. Another spot is the Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline near the Oakland Airport, a 10 minutes drive from my house. If you come through the Oakland Airport and stay in the hotel nearby, I can show you around. On the San Francisco side, I don't go there much because of the traffic. However, not far from the San Francisco International Airport, there is a few good spots near the San Mateo Bridge. Lake Merritt in Oakland is an excellent place for waterfowl pictures.

Michael
